Thanks captain obvious.

If the Broncos go 0-4, a whole new level of panic will be hitting the Mile High City. I mean, the Vance Joseph Broncos at least started 2-0 and gave us a few weeks of some false hope. However, an 0-4 start and a winless month of September?

Yikes.

Not to be captain obvious, but the Broncos need, NEED to win this game against the Jaguars. One positive Sunday is all they could need to potentially right the ship and get some positive growth going for Vic Fangio’s Broncos. However, a 0-4 start would put one big ol hole into Fangio’s ship and boy it will be sinking.

The Broncos remaining schedule is brutal, so they need to win these games they’re supposed to win and sneak a few surprise W’s in here and there to get themselves into the postseason hunt. That, unfortunately, has yet to happen and the Broncos have lost at the very least, two winnable games thus far.

The Jaguars are without their week one starting quarterback Nick Foles, however, rookie Gardner Minshew and his mustache have things rolling in Jacksonville. Their defense showed last Thursday night that they can still be elite. They may also have All-Pro corner Jalen Ramsey on the field for them to make life even more difficult for the winless Broncos.

It won’t be an easy test for the Broncos this Sunday. Will they avoid 0-4 and get a win against the Jaguars? or will they go 0-4 and deal with the drama that comes with that?
